Tips and Options

  • The sausage can be chicken, turkey or pork.
  • If you like pasta al dente, in step 1, remove from cooking 1-3 minutes earlier than specified in the package and finish cooking when mixed with the sauce.
  • Serve with green salad and a glass of red wine.
  • When the pasta is cooked with the sauce, as in this recipe, it is much tastier! :)
